A distant view of a two people in dug-out canoe on the wide river, one of whom is using a paddle. Beyond the far bank can seen the wide treeless plains of Nuer country. Although the location on the river is unknown, Evans-Pritchard undertook fieldwork among the Lou and Jikany tribes in the vicinity of the river in 1931 and again in 1935.
